Manchester United Supporters’ Club Malta premiering documentary ‘The Religion – 60 Years of Loyal Support ‘

Manchester United Supporters’ Club Malta, in collaboration with John Gubba, a freelance film producer and director, shall be premiering a 115-minute long documentary film ‘The Religion – 60 Years’ of Loyal Support’. 

The film premiere will be held on Saturday 16th November on the screens of Saint James Cavalier in Valletta. Sunday 17th November sees the film feature at Grand Hotel in Mgarr, Gozo.

This production is compiled from sixty years of footage, filmed during club events, archives of PBS, footage from MTA, private archives, as well from a substantial amount of recordings which have been captured in the last 5 years since John Gubba embarked on this project. The documentary film links the bombing of Old Trafford in 1941, the Second World War bombings over Malta, and the 1958 Munich air-crash. MUSC Malta was founded one year after the Munich crash, and since then both Manchester United and the supporters’ club have evolved together, with many proud moments to be shared. 

The film premiere coincides with the launch of a book titled A tale of two cities: Manchester & Malta’s Grand Harbour. Authored by Prof. Victor Grech, the two hundred page hard bound book features images of Manchester and the Grand Harbour and an extended coverage of MUSC Malta 60 Years Anniversary celebrations. 

Two former Manchester United Players, Quinton Fortune and Michael Clegg, will be at the book launch which will be held in Portomaso, on Friday 15th November. All proceeds from the book sale will be donated to Beating Hearts Malta. 

The former players will attend a Q&A session at the Manchester United Supporters’ Club in Msida, on Saturday 16th November at 2pm. The public is invited to attend. They will also be present for the film premiere.
